Has anyone heard back if Phil managed to pass the info on to Jean ?


Cynthia Report 25 Feb 2012 22:01

I do hope Phil gave Jean advice on how to return to this thread :-S :-S

The best thing to do is to get Jean to contact Watford SS they should be able to find which agency was used , then she can contact then to see if they could assist her with this search.
It may be that he has been in touch to view his records if not she can ask can she leave a letter with his file.
She should also put her name and her brothers in her tree, so should he know of his birth name and joins this site he can find her entry and e.mail her.
There are also several sites where she can leave messages on should she wish this, that way if he does a search on the internet he can find her message.

If you haven't already done so, add your details to the national adoption contact register. Google for the web link

The thing that concerns me is that mothers maiden name is listed as Stacey on the birth record and on this tree it is the father who is Stacey. Have you seen your own birth certificate?


LadyKira Report 24 Feb 2012 10:54

There is a tree on Ancestry that has one listed as birth 1941 Watford and death 2009. He has a sister marked as private and father is listed as Leslie Stacey and Alice Warner,
